There are three words to describe "Rival Demons": "Non stop action!" This story picks right up where book 4 ends. Harper escapes death by the hands of the witch coven by entering the demon realm thanks to Mary Anne, Lea and Jackson. As she and her friends try to close the portal the twin tigers manage to follow them to the other side. This of course is the start of the first battle. Harper manages to do something no one believes she could do, she kills one of the twins leaving the other in total ...more

This is my favourite so far!
Harper has gone her whole life not knowing the meaning to have a true family. And wham the ending was brilliant because.. She does. She just didn't know!
And what's best is who her family actually is!
Jackson and Harpers relationship breaks down because Jackson will do anything to protect her, but they survive everything and their relationship/bond just gets stronger as it builds back up!
Harper manages to contain and control her power more, and she's not all that she s

So this book was jam packed with action. Harper is really starting to learn how much power she has and how to control that power. Jackson is kinda annoying in this book if you ask me. I think Harper did a lot of growing up she is no longer that 17 year old girl who can be pushed around and have things hid from her. She is really growing up. Again we are left with a huge cliffhanger and turn of events at the end….oh boy.

This book played out like a movie within my mind's eye. You can't but help fall in love with the protagonist, a strong and independent lead, who voices doubts within herself that we can all relate to at some point in life. It's only when she embraces her strength, that we see the strength she is capable of, that surprises us all and has us asking "how was that even possible?"

I did enjoy the first few books, but I only began to feel it pick up from the fourth. In the earlier books it felt as if t

how can I put into words all that I love about not only this book but the series as a whole? I would sound something like this "wow, just wow. I mean really wow. amazing" Definitely not one of my finer moments but what can I say this series has grabbed hold of me. I anxiously awaited the release of this book and have loved every minute that I spent with Jackson and Harper.
I have always felt that good writers weave stories that a reader gets wrapped up in. Sarra is one of those writers for me. Sh

Some of my questions are answered however I got hit with a few curve balls. I have to find out the answers it's getting late but the final book calls.

I have been a unabashed fan girl of Sarra's since the very first book in the series, Beautiful Demons. Starring Harper, a teenage girl for who life has changed in every way, and Jackson, a boy unlike any other she has known, the Peachville High Demons series is full of twists and turns, intrigue and surprises. Harper and Jackson are, on the surface, complete opposites and this makes them fabulous characters. This new book changes their relationship, filling it full of doubt and mistrust. While I ...more

Adding a review for this as I've rated it without a review.

I remember reading this as one of the first fantasy YA novels. If I reread this I am not convinced I'd be as in love with it as I was when I read this in 2014. A lot of things have happened since. 2014 Was a very hard year for myself so all the reviews are showing up on the same date. I can't explain why they are, if the ratings are justice or accurate I can also not say when I truly read these. I'm just going to say 2014 on the same day

Sarra,

I didn't think you could top the previous four books, but WOW.

Now we are fighting. Incase you didn't know, we are in a fight until I get to read the next book.

No pressure.

The ending was absolutely stunning and breathtaking. I'm in love with this series.

Ok, I feel a little better now but not really. A little better because my OCD has been satisfied and I have read the series as far as it extends. Not really because now I have to wait for the 6th (and final) book!!! That’s right, folks. We have Literary Limbo….again! However, I am not freaking out because I am patiently waiting for an e-mail back from the author with an estimated release date that I can jot down. Then I will let the countdown commence.

Anywho….

It's rare that I get the chance or inclination to finish two books in 24 hours but once I started to read this I simply couldn't put it down. The series - now known as "Shadow Demons" - improves with every installment. This one actually started off quite excitingly and picked up the pace as it went along. It finished just as action packed, if not quite as surprisingly, as Harper finally encounters and begins to experience her true destiny. To be straight, I actually guessed the ending about a th ...more

4.5 stars.....Wwwwwwhhhhaaaatttt! That totally surprised me. I did not see that coming....I really dont know what ever to say bc I dont want to give anything away. My mine is still processing it all in. This series is freaking awesome. If you're not reading it you really should be. If you love fantasy you will really like this series and some more of Sarra Cannon's other books. Sarra's books get me wanting more. Now I can't wait to read book 6...

Full of intriguing twists

This series gets better and better. I could not put this book down. I am so into the characters in this story. You feel what they feel and you root for them during their journey. I highly recommend this series and not giving away the story that you will need to read for yourself. Totally love this!!

Demon politics

In this book we get to see more about the Shadow realm that Jackson is from, more of Harper's powers, and more about the human and demon politics and was going on between them. I'm really excited too because we get to see the southern realm which is kinda a spoiler but not really a spoiler because there's so much that happens in this book.

I thought at first that it will be boring but instead it was interesting after all. Not as interesting like the other books but still it worths the time and effort to read it. And the money.I will definitely continue reading this series. By the way the end was unexpected.

Great Read, lots of ups and downs, but a prefect ending. Ms. Cannon sure knows how to keep her readers on their toes. I own every book in this series and this is my third time reading them, and I still find new things that I missed during my last reading.

Now in the shadow world. Multiple challenges and surprises . The series continues in good form. Harper continues to learn about her power and to be a rebel, not always being smart about Harper and Jackson figure out their relationship.

Harper's journey keeps getting better and better. Just when I least expect it, she finds her way over and over again. It's exciting to watch her grow into a powerful witch.
